Speaker: Mel Resendiz
Topic: “The Beauty of Protea”
The protea grown by Ismael (Mel) Resendiz and his family business, Resendiz Brothers Protea Growers, are beloved by the crowds of visitors who admire and purchase them at SDFA’s Festival of Trees in Balboa Park. A recent article in California Garden (November/December 2018) describes the dedication and success of the Resendiz Brothers as they continue to expand their business into the national and international community.
Now we have the opportunity to hear Mel in person as he discusses the background and potential of these unique and beautiful flowers. After the program, Mel will be available for questions, and will bring several varieties of protea and other plants to show and sell. Please join us for this inspiring program.
